September 2016 - Turbocharge Your AngularJS Apps

Meeting Topic
 

Turbocharge Your AngularJS Apps

Abstract

AngularJS helps developers create powerful client-side, single page applications. One of its benefits is its ability to automatically detect changes to your models and propagate them to the rest of the application's views and to any subscribed listeners. Creating templates, controllers, and reusable components, with some learning, can become a breeze and joy to implement. But if you're not careful, your application will fail to scale as it gets more and more complex. In this presentation I'll share with you the lessons I learned when I first worked with AngularJS and the steps I took one year later to ensure that this internal application for a national retail chain will stand the test of time. This session will cover AngularJS application performance and the techniques and tools you can apply to optimize your apps going forward. Angular version 1.x will be used and basic concepts, such as scopes will be quickly covered before diving in.

August 2016 - Intro to Azure Machine Learning: Predict Who Survives the Titanic

Meeting Topic
 

Intro to Azure Machine Learning: Predict Who Survives the Titanic

Abstract

Interested in doing machine learning in the cloud?  In this demo-heavy talk, I will set the stage with some information on the different types of machine learning (clustering, classification, regression, and anomaly detection) supported by Azure Machine Learning and when to use each.  Then, for the majority of the session, I’ll demonstrate using Azure Machine Learning to build a model which predicts survival of individuals on the Titanic (one of the challenges on the Kaggle website).  I'll talk through how I analyze the given data and why I choose to drop or modify certain data, so you will see the entire process from data cleaning to building, training, testing, and deploying a model.  You’ll leave with practical knowledge on how to get started and build your own predictive models using Azure Machine Learning.
